Kurinishiki, Hybrid

Cucurbita maxima


Kurinishiki, Hybrid
Seed #385
This winter squash hybrid produces uniform dark green fruit with vertical light green stripes and marks. The fruits are medium-sized weighing over 3 lbs that are globe-shaped and somewhat flat with a small seed cavity. The flesh is bright yellow orange, sweet and tasty. Its uniformity, vigorous growth and excellent flavor make Kurinishiki the leading kabocha squash grown in the United States, Mexico and South America and exported to Japan.

Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring/summer after last frost in a warm, sunny location. Hill planting: Form soil into a 1-ft. diameter mound 3-4" tall. Space mounds 5-10' apart. On each mound plant 1-2 seeds. Row planting: See spacing info in chart. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Hand pollination may be necessary. The vine can be trained to climb a vertical support for better air circulation and ease of harvest or left to sprawl on the ground. After harvest, winter squash should be left in the sun for a few days to cure before storing.
